Just what I was looking for.

by from Knoxville, TN on June 15, 2017

Truck meets all of my pulling and hauling needs. Lots of interior room, including leg room. Plenty of power, and surprisingly easy to handle.

Decent truck

by from Lexington on April 24, 2017

First auto diesel I've bought, so far it's a very solid vehicle. A little rough when it's cold, but once the engine warms up, it purs like a kitten.

The 6.0 powerstroke is a great all around truck. Has plenty of power tow and a very nice ride for being a 1 ton truck. Mine averages around 17 mpg stock which is impressive for its size. Interior is fairly basic on xlt and lariat trims but Harley Davidson, King Ranch and outlaw editions bring it up to a nice touch. They do require frequent oil changes as the oil has 3 jobs to do. 1) lubricate the engine 2) operate the fuel injection system 3) control the turbos vane geometry. The 2 fuel filters also need to be changed often. Once they become dirty, injectors won't get a full fill and causes premature wear to them. When owners neglect these you can quickly see how they received the reputation they have. Be proactive on your search. Get records from previous owners, bring the vehicle in for an inspection as well as paying to get the motor scanned and take a look at how the vehicle has been taken care of overall.

I was happy with the F350 Diesel in all areas except cost of maintenace. I bought as a lease return one year old. I bought an extended warrenty policy and that was the best value for the money. It cost more the keep it on the road in six years than it did to buy. Engine problems started towards the end of the warrenty period, Two weeks before the warrenty expired it was in the dealer shop for 10 days with the engine out twice to correct an oil leak. Over the next year it was in the shop 3 times and averaged about $7k each time for engine work. The money I paid for repairs and the cost of the extended warrenty was more than the price of the truck

Just hope what I read about the 6.0 is wrong.

Just recently bought this truck 165,000 miles, and I guess what impresses me the most is the power, and regardless what someone said about getting poor mileage. I pick up (7) 500lbs drums and a turn around total 260+ miles. And on three different times I got 18.6 MPG. I was totally shocked expecting less than 12MPG. For those that intend to buy this truck, I would still consider the flaws that is known about this 6.0, is to get an extended warranty engine and transmission. 100K 4 yrs. American Auto Shield. I think this will be my best investment i did when I bought this truck. I would recommend the 7.3 engine less red flags.

2011 I purchased a used 2006 f350 6.0, amarillo package. i was new to the diesel scene and only knew what i had read, i picked the 6.0 for many reasons, reasons like good turning, exellent towing, soild front axle, i liked the style, and i liked the bad rep the 6.0 had been given, it lowered the prices of the trucks and i was able to buy mine for 20,000$ flat all taxes included. after buying this investment, i upgraded the motor, and turbo, delete kits and turbos and heads. over all invested another 12,000$ into the truck, and have a lifted off road giant, now almost at 200,000. best truck ever.

Fantastic truck for towing + full size campers.

Towed 17,000 lbs. in Nevada 130 degree desert no problem. AC still ice cold. Engine temp remained normal even during steep hills. All dealership maintenace so no problems. 10 year powertrain warranty transferable. Ford backs this truck if you do all scheduled maintenance. I've heard of the bad rapping of these trucks, but they always said they "did not have it serviced by the dealer or can not prove they maintained it". That voids the ten year warranty. Make sure you by from original owners with maintenace verified. You will be a happy camper!

I bought this truck from a dealership, and paid alot and bought the extended warranty. I have had it about a month and it has been in the shop for 3 of the 4 weeks. The cost of fixing it has been another arm and leg and the warranty wont cover it. The EGR valve and something electrical I would of been better off buying a new one. NEVER AGAIN. I was warned and didnt listen figured they just got a bad truck well I should have listened. Now I am about broke and have no truck to work. UGH.......
